CBD oil is a great treatment option for nausea.  As always this is about to get sciency but Legal Hippie loves the science behind cannabis.  It all comes down to a very special little compound known as 5-hydroxytryptamine-1A. I say little but when it comes down to nausea little is more like BIG!  There are many findings that suggest that CBD can and does activate this 5-hydroxytryptamine-1A.  Once this compound is activated it can help reduce the feelings of nausea and it also suppresses the vomiting reflex.

So next time you have a sour stomach try reaches for CBD and get those wonderful little BIG 5-hydroxytryptamine-1A activated!

My neurons are making their own marijuana… Guess What? So are yours!!!!

camille-orgel-551599-unsplash

My neurons are making their own marijuana… Guess What? So are yours!!!!  I would like to think that I could brag about my marijuana neurons but fact is your brain is creating this exact same compound.  Matter of fact marijuana can actually help you grow more neurons and in return you become smarter.  HUH…. much unlike the old dumb stoner jokes we have always heard isn’t it? Let me explain!

Marijuana can stimulate growth and even repair your brain cells! The compounds that your neurons are creating are their very own CANNABINOIDS! The cannabinoids are responsible for filtering what is coming and going into your brain.  If you are like me… I need some filtering. THANK YOU MARIJUANA NEURONS aka cannabinoids!  When your brain releases its own cannabinoids it has a very calming effect similar to what smoking marijuana does.  Marijuana in exchange actually mimics your own bodies response.  So in a game of…. Who got you high first, the plant or your brain, your brain is the winner!

Now why did I tell you all this? One reason is that is it awesome, the other is that studies have been shown that CBD or Cannabinoids from the Cannabis plant can treat stress due to neurogenesis.  Neurogenesis (birth of neurons) is the process by which neurons are generated from neural stem cells and progenitor cells. It plays a central role in neural development. Cannabis strains with high levels of CBD are typically known for relieving chronic pain, stress, anxiety, and a number of other conditions.  They have also been shown to reduce the stress of neurogenesis and aids in the production and the increase in neuron production and battle the effects of chronic unpredictable stress.

So there you have it! CBD once again can help your body do what needs to be done.  In this case, Neuron production! Sign me up!

These Hot Flashes Though… CBD to the rescue!

thomas-hafeneth-244903

CBD for menapasue… I swear this stuff will forever amaze me.  Did you know that England’s Queen Victoria herself used to eat hash candies to ease menstrual cramps? Marijuana has been around for FOREVER!  Afterall it is literally a plant.  A PLANT!!!

Back to menopause. It is so funny to me how us women gripe and groan over our periods for years. Literally years!!! I myself have been complaing for some 26 years now.  Wow that is a long time!  Let me just add to this and say that once I no longer have to deal with the ever dreaded period I will continue to gripe and groan over not having one.   With this comes hot flashes, depression and anxiety, fatigue, and sleep problems which can last for months or even years pre- and post-menopause. Ummmmm no thanks! But if I am lucky enough to continue with life this is in my future. So can CBD be beneficial to menopause? Why Yes! Let’s dig a bit deeper.

As we may or may not know CBD has been shown to help with sleep and anxiety.  But Menapause includes more than just this.  It includes increased risk of breast cancer, bone loss, dry skin and hot flashes.  Lucky for you the compounds in CBD actively interact with the sex hormone estrogen, which is a key culprit behind menopause symptoms! This takes us right back to the endocannabinoid system! As I have explained in previous installments on my Legal Hippie site. This system is responsible for placing the body into homeostasis.  Homeostasis is very important to our bodies.  It is the balancing system. For example, it is what is responosble for keeping your body around 98 degrees even if it is 100 outside.  This is important! It is a checks and balance system that is necessairy to survival!  Your body being in Homeostasis is the key to the endocannabinoid system to help regulate things like body temperature, immune function, mood, sleep, pain, appetite and energy metabolism, and finally the Reproductive cycles.  Endocannabinoids are like the body’s own cannabis. Breastmilk even contains cannabinoids!  Just a little tid bit of fun facts for you. Compounds in the cannabis plant (phytocannabinoids) directly interact and engage with the endocannabinoid system. When it comes to women’s reproductive health, endocannabinoids and estrogen are right there in the same race!  When estrogen peaks, so do your levels of endocannabinoids. In fact, prior to menopause, women are most sensitive to psychoactive THC right before ovulation! So if you live where THC is legal… girls be careful when ovulating! HAHA This is when estrogen levels are at there highest.  Estrogen directly engages endocannabinoids. In fact, the enzyme that breaks down certain endocannabinoids (enzyme FAAH) is regulated by estrogen. As estrogen levels begin to drop, endocannabinoid levels change. So the best thing you could do for your menopausal body is to help it balance itself right back out.  I stand behind Legal Hippie CBD oil.  Its a full spectrum oil grown here in KY!

Cannabis and Alzheimer’s

lotte-meijer-142578

If you know anyone in life you will at some point hear the medical diagnosis of Alzheimer’s.  My own personal family has been riddled with this diagnosis.  It is so incredibly hard to see someone you once knew change and have no idea who you are. Alzheimer’s is a disease that is a irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills, and eventually the ability to carry out the simplest tasks.  Things like normal daily task such as brushing your teeth become unfamiliar.  In most people with Alzheimer’s, symptoms first appear in their mid-60s.

At current times, in the state of Kentucky, THC is still considered illegal.  When it becomes legal, THC in Marijuana can be very useful in helping and even controlling the progression of this disease.  THC is shown to begin to remove the plague buildup in the brain.  Beta amyloid is a toxic protein that builds up in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients, forming what is called plaque.  Scientist believe that the plaque contributes to the debilitating symptoms of Alzheimer’s.  Now until THC is legalized, where we reside, CBD can be helpful also! You see Cannabinoids reduce in the inflammation in the cells.  It is a very powerful anti-inflammatory.  When beta amyloid accumulates in neurons, the brain has an inflammatory response. This inflammation contributes to the disease’s progression and remains the main cause of Alzheimer’s-related damage. The study published in Nature: Aging and Mechanisms of Disease, also showed that cannabis is known for treating many types of inflammation including the inflammation in the brain and aids in preventing nerve cell death.

AMAZINGLY there was a team from Neuroscience Research Australia that indeed published the first evidence suggesting that CBD can actually reverse some of the cognitive impairments caused by the Alzheimer’s disease, and this may be due to CBD’s ability in promoting the growth of new brain cells, or neurogenesis. In case you didn’t know Neurogenesis is the process by which new nerve cells are generated .  This is huge in the Cannabis and science world! Heck it’s huge in my world!

So if you know someone that you love that is showing early signs Hempworx CBD is a full spectrum oil that can be extremely beneficial.  It contains over 120 different strains of cannabinoids.  Not only will it or can it aid in slowing the progression of this terrible disease it can also treat some of the symptoms.  Lack of appetite, depression and aggression for instance can all be treated with CBD.

CBD HELP!!!! 2018 NO SMOKING ON THE WAY!!!!

steven-pahel-336432

It’s January 7 so if your New Years Resolution was to stop smoking and you are beginning to struggle CBD might just be what you need!!! You should stop smoking cigarettes and start smoking pot.  NO!!!! Totally kidding, you should not smoke pot but instead use CBD oil otherwise known as cannabinoil.  CBD is a substance found in Hemp that gives you all the wonderful medicinal help. A recent study came out showing that CBD cannabis oil can be an efficient aid in quitting smoking. The researchers at the University College London have published an article in the “Addictive Behaviors” journal which found that the non-psychoactive chemical in cannabis (by its scientific name “cannabidoil”, also known as CBD oil), could reduce the number of cigarettes consumed by smokers who wanted to quit. CBD has an impact of the memory portion of the brain.  You know the part that lights up when you might see someone else smoking.  That all to familiar twinge begins to come back and the craving seem almost unbearable.  One of the reasons why it can help you out is that it is a neuro-protectant that protects and repairs the brain from the damage that drug addiction may cause. In fact, it can help reduce neuro-degeneration by almost up to 48.8% and protect it from further damage.  So for a short Sunday evening installment of the pros of CBD you should consider adding it to you routine for health and to help aid in fighting addictions, including nicotine.

Flu Season….. Pass me the CBD!

vladislav-muslakov-261627

Its that time of year again!  Now that the holidays are passed us, its time to pass the sickness.  Ugh….. So of course I begin to wonder if my Legal Hippie CBD oil can help fight the common cold and flu.  What did I find?!?! Ummmmmm without a doubt YES!  It can help to fight the symptoms associated with the cold and flu and be an aid to your immune system.

Ever wondered why you get stuffy noses, sore throats, and achy bodies?  It is because of the inflammation in your body.  What the cold and flu does is place your immune system into hyper drive while it is trying to combat the illness.  An unwanted response to this hyper drive immune system is inflammation.  The inflammation can get so bad with fighting the cold and flu that you in turn get even sicker!  This is why you can end up with things like pneumonia after the initial virus.  Over abundance of inflammation to your body can cause heart, organ, intestinal and lung issues.  Cannabidiol (CBD), may offer control of the immune system and in turn provide protection from viral infections. Cannabis has already been recognized to inhibit fungus and bacteria and can be considered a new class of antimicrobial!

So is CBD a flu and cold cure? No, just consider it a little jump to your immune system while it helps to alleviate the pain and a sleeplessness associated with the flu the  amazing anti-inflammatory properties of CBD will continue to help you and your immune system so you can get better faster!!!
